TC for DA 60 - 250

Greetings,

Now that I have the *DA 60 - 250 f4 lens, do you have any recommendations for possible teleconverters? I see that the Kenko works with SDM lens. What are your thoughts? Maybe not even consider using one.

Thks,

Kiteman

Using a TC on a 60-250 is the same as using a cheap lens. Really good results up close, not so good at a distance. The best use I've found for my FA 1.7 TC is to give more magnification with my macro lenses.

Anyone got any news about the TC on the pentax roadmap. None of my TCs (4 all up) auto focus on my 60-250 so I am hanging out for the new pentax PC.

The Pentax F 1.7 AF TC turns even M lenses into AF in it's own way.
